  1. Being a font nerd, it would be so great, and incredibly useful if all the Affinity apps for iPad were able to seamlessly import free Google Fonts. The free app Fontasy is able to do this already with various apps, including LumaFusion and ProCreate. Sadly Affinity apps are not on the list for saving fonts to. Please allow this functionality in AffinityPhoto and AffinityDesigner (and by extension the AffinityPublisher for iPad which will be available one day.) Thank you and keep the awesome flowing!
  2. Is there a way to select certain fonts as favorites? At the moment, every time I select a font and write a word in it and change the tool afterwards, it snaps back to Arial, and I have to look for the font again I have just written in. How can I stop this behavior and have the artistic text tool remember the last used font - and how can I select favorite fonts where I have a shortlist of 4 - 6 fonts I regularly use, so I don't have to browse through all those comic sans funny symbols chalk scriptures and impact stuff to find the fonts I want to use. thanks!
  3. I was wondering if it was possible to warp text in Designer. I attached an image with what I am trying to accomplish.
  4. I have this very strange issue with text on a path. when trying to change the font, it doesn't update the font initially typed wtih. Meaning, if i type in ARIAL, then try and change it to TIMES, the TIMES font is shown over top of the ARIAL font. I have included two screen shots. Had to take picture...screen cap wouldn't work to show the error. I have tried this selected the font, or even selecting the object and changing the font..same out come. Gary
  5. I couldn't find any question related with this issue, so I've decided to start this topic. I usually install new fonts while I am working on the project. While using Adobe products, it wasn't an issue at all, but I realized that when I install a new font, the app doesn't update its fonts list automatically and I didn't find any button within the app that it could be done, so I would have to close and reopen it to have my new font at the fonts list. Is there any way to do that without closing and reopening the app to reload my computer fonts list? Thanks.
  6. I want to make text that looks like it has been written with a gold. Can some one please tell me if and how I can achieve this? I've attached some examples.
  7. Just trying to remove the gaps. Couldnt find anything searching around. Thought maybe ya'll can help :) thanks

    PDF import corrupts text

    Version: Photo 1.5.1 (test) Criticality: High Opening a PDF in Affinity Photo causes text with too much space between letters (See attached Screenshot). Different configuration of Replace of missing Fonts in import dialog does not make any difference. When I Import a PDF, wich was generated on the same PC (other application, e.g. Libre Office Writer), it works correctly. In this case there are no missing Fonts. It looks like Affnity Photo does not use Fonts embedded to the PDF. Replacement by a other installed Font or the same Font causes corrupt text.
  9. Hello The problem happens in Affinity Photo v1.6.5.123 for windows (I run it on win10). Please find a screenshot with bug in text written using orator Std standard font. The "fi" in Pacific is not correctly displayed as the "i" is too closed to the "f". Same problem with "fl" of float Note that if we use capital letters FL / FI and Fi / FI are correctly displayed. Can you confirm it is a bug or can you give me a workaround to avoid this problem? Thanks in advance Pierre
  10. Hello, First, sorry for my poor English. It happens in using Affinity Designer. If I use KoPub Batang font, exported pdf doesn't show Korean characters. With embed all font doesn't work for that fornt, but work text as curves. I just add sample file and font KoPub Batang_Pro Medium.otf that is free font font-problem.afdesign font-problem.eps font-problem.pdf

    changing fonts crashes

    Hi, Every time i change font Affinity freezes forcing me to force quit. Both from the top or from the "character" panel. Doing something wrong?
  13. Hi there, I have two problems. I'm trying to solve the problem. every time I try to select a font, Affinity Photo freezes. It stops mainly at H or M. I tried to remove the font, but I still have problems. Is there any other way? And there is a duplicate font thickness. Is this an error? I'm using Photo version 1.6.5.135 on Windows 10 64bit. There was no problem when I used the trial version. I downloaded 5 fonts (English 3 Korean 2).
  14. I need to warp text like they do in the Star Wars intro. I can’t figure it out. See the example. Howwwww?
  15. Publisher has problems using the integrated kerning pairs of Postscript Type1 fonts. It ignores them! I noticed this with extreme pairs like LT. In new OpenType fonts this works correctly. Not so with Postscript Type1 – no matter if the AFM files or only the font suitcases are included.
  16. I have issues including freezing/crashing while trying to select font for any text box. The only reason I can suggest except the software bug is that this might happen due to Korean fonts installed in my computer... Are there anybody experiencing the same issue with me?
  17. I'm on a Win10 computer. I'm an affinity photo newbie I'm working on a book cover and I want to have a sort of marbleizing of color, or a swirl of a darker shade within the color of the text of the title. I've tried adding shadows, and I can do that to the outside of the text, but not having much luck on the inside.
  18. Hello, It seems that Affinity recognises the Instances in a variable font. That is good. Also the contours of these instances are looking okay! The problems is with the advance width of the glyphs. These stay the same though-out all the instances. That is wrong. The advance width can also be variable and need to be addressed. Hope it helps! Thom
  19. Hello, We need and extra interface/panel for the variable fonts. All the 'visible' axes need to populate that, so we can fiddle around with these and get in realtime visible output on the pages. How these interfaces must look like? Maybe, for a start, just as Illustrator has now, with sliders? Later, more refined controls. Some axes are just on/off switches (checkboxes). Maybe a font with a two axes designspace should have a square view where the user can drag a location in and so control the two axes at once... (thinking out loud here) Thom
  20. Is there a way ti change the font size of the forums when accessed through Safari on iOS? I cant find a way thanks for your help.
  21. I heard about this font on a podcast last night and thought some people might find this interesting and/or useful. It looks weird but was specifically designed to look like it does for various reasons. Here's the link to the website: https://sansforgetica.rmit/ And here's a link to the podcast: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3cswhfj
  22. Thai font doesn't display properly. - Program : Affinity Designer 1.6.5.135 - Reproduce : type or paste thai characters in a document. - It happens to new document. This attachment show example of errors. - Font family : Cordia New ErrorThaifFont.afdesign
  23. Hi Affinity Still love your program I have a request for a feature. Right now I can only choose in the Fontmanager if a font is a favorite or not. So I have the problem that whenever I have to be aware of license issues I either have to look up the font for the license or the way I do it right now is to just put license free once in my favorite tab. I have a number of otions that could be done to solve this. 1. Have an Icon that shows if a font is license free or not 1.1 Best would be if this is set by Affinity itself but that is probably not possible since the license is not part of the font-file itself 1.2 Let the users set the icon themselfs--> Maybe collect the information in a DB to let affinity be able to give the information in the future?? 2. Give the possibility to create your own Font category, this would have the advantedge that you could not only sort your fonts by license / no license but also sort them for different styles like modern, vintage, crazy......whatever you would like to call them. 3. Do both the icon and the license icon, since both information do not exclude themselfs The way I see it there are only different lists behind the buttons --> All, Recent ,Favorite and used. So why not give the opportunity to create more that one of your own lists keep up the good work Peet@MD
  24. Happy new year guys! I am in the middle of creating my first font (handwritten) and use Affinity Designer for designing the digits. However, the process is very tenacious right now. Since I'm new to font development, this is my current approach and setup. I created a document with a growing number of artboards, one artboard for each possible digit, ligature, symbol, and so on. I created each digit using a stroke with slightly varying line widths at the beginning and end. The program into which the digits are imported works with PDF, SVG, EPS among other (to me unknown) file formats – that's okay, because I can output each digit with the export persona named accordingly. SVG is the recommended file format. But I do run into some problems: The exported digit-files MUST NOT be exported as a path with a stroke The exported digit-files MUST consist of a single shape. The exported digit-files (even if points 1. and 2. were taken into account) as SVG are created with a white box in the size of the artboard around them, which lead to another step of selecting and deleting something manually that actually wasn't created in the first place while designing the digit. (The document is set up with the check for Transparent background under the Colour dialogue) I would have guessed now I can select all contents of the different artboards via shift+click in the layers palette and convert them with a single click on "Expand Stroke" - but this is not possible, because the selection is automatically limited to the artboards and not to the children. SelectChildrenOverMultipleArtboards.mov Furthermore, I would have liked to use an action/macro to merge the multiple curves of single letters like A, B, E or F into a single curve - but unfortunately the macro palette only exists in Affinity Photo, if I see it correctly. Does anyone have an idea how to convert the files without all the unnecessary additional effort/tasks? Cheers and have a nice day MrDoodlezz
  25. Not only does the font-size selector not work, but check out its behavior when you manually resize the text: The displayed numeric font size changes as you resize the text, starting with the value you last selected in the drop-down list... even though that selection was ignored.
